came up with an idea of presenting the numbers to the techno-dependent
audience in the form of a stage show. Simply named ‘THE MATHS
SHOW’, the first performance hit the Mumbai city at Zaverben
Hall, Ghatkopar, on September 7, 1998. A modest attempt to popularize
mental mathematics, ‘The Maths Show’ has seen over
400 performances held all over the world till date.
the hunger for ‘more’ maths continued, which saw
the launch of ‘The Puzzle Show’ making

numbers and creates the thirst for getting results from the puzzle
books developed by the Maths Wizard himself, in matter of seconds. It
awakens the puzzle approach towards mathematics.
but not the least, here is a show that will help schools and colleges
to brighten up ‘Mathematics’ as a subject for their
students by exposing them to easy ways of calculating without
